Yes - it is the default shell with SuSE i.e. when you login on a text
console, or when you open a terminal under a GUI, you will be running
bash, unless you have deliberately taken steps to make it be otherwise.

Oh yes. And how. You can do M-x shell to get a new emacs buffer which
is running a shell. This will run your default shell which is normally
bash. To be honest however, this can be a little unsatisfactory for
various reasons and if you're learning Linux, I'd suggest avoiding it.
Consider learning emacs and learning bash as separate projects.
You can also do various interesting things with the shell from within
emacs e.g. execute a shell command, execute a shell command with the
region as input, and very usefully, execute a shell command with the
region as input whose output then replaces the region.
